Scans of POLAPAN35 – a long forgotten 35mm b/w slide film from Polaroid, developed manually in 2 minutes. A body of work, shot 1996 over 10 years, re-edited 2016.
I’m an analogue photographer who struggles to get digital images that resemble the prints that come out of my darkroom.
In 2014 I commissioned Professional Drum Scanning to scan the very best images of the puppets for the 30th Anniversary exhibition Spitting Image From Start to Finish at The Cartoon Museum, London.
“Tim’s scans were the first Drum Scans I’ve had so I wasn’t sure what to expect but I had high hopes. As soon as I opened the files in Photoshop I realised that Tim’s scans were even better than I had hoped! It wasn’t long before I went and got a big print done. Tim provides a quality service, at great prices all in a pleasing time frame and I’ll certainly be using him again”
“We have been using Tim’s excellent services for all our drum scanning needs for the King Crimson boxsets ‘Larks’ Tongues in Aspic – The Complete Recordings’, ‘The Road To Red’ (US Tour 1974), and ‘Starless’ (Europe Live 1973-74). Tim has scanned 35mm transparencies of the band live in concert and has always brought out the very best in each. He has always turned things around rapidly and the results have exceeded our expectations. We think Professional Drum Scanning rocks!”
